Bringing together over 20 original peer-reviewed articles by researchers, practitioners and policy-makers, this special issue of the Refugee Survey Quarterly (Volume 39, Issue 4, published in December 2020) aims to “Improving Attention to Internal Displacement Globally”.

In addition the the journal’s editorial board, two Secretariat members of the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Internal Displacement (HLP) also served as guest editors.
